A law unto themselves...in Buhari's Nigeria CHANGE means KILL AND GO!

Campaign Against Alarming Trend in Torture, Jungle Justice in Nigeria
This is certainly not the best time to be a suspect, an accused or caught red-handed violating a law or committing a crime in Nigeria, especially for the less privileged. The reason is obvious: torture, jungle (mob or street) justice is spreading across the nook and cranny of Nigeria at an alarming rate. A survey by NOIPolls in 2014 says about 95 percent of Nigerians affirmed that there was a high prevalence of jungle justice and mob attacks in Nigeria. Similarly, a Deutsche Welle report titled: ‘’When the mob rules: jungle justice in Africa’’ also submits that ‘’jungle justice is rampant across sub-Saharan Africa’’. The report went further to say that, ‘’every day at least one person on the continent faces torture or even death at the hands of irate citizenry determined to be judge, jury and executioner’’. Cameroon and Nigeria are said to have the highest rate of jungle justice in Africa. While affluent Nigerians habitually circumvent justice and get away with colossal stealing, corruption, criminal offences and malfeasance by hiring retinue lawyers, hapless Nigerians are tortured, instantly hacked to death for say, stealing a bicycle, on fanatical religious sentimentalities or for simply been at the wrong place at the wrong time. My earlier essay: ‘’Extra-judicial Killings, Right To Life of Gunshot Victims in Nigeria’’ records extra-judicial killings by security agents, the current essay will dissect acts of torture and jungle justice in Nigeria mainly by private citizens.

THE NEW BOKO HARAM (MIDDLE BELT AND SOUTHERN): CULTURAL IMPERIALISM AND PASTORAL JIHADISM IN NIGERIA

If We Must Die


If we must die, let it not be like hogs
Hunted and penned in an inglorious spot,
While round us bark the mad and hungry dogs,
Making their mock at our accursèd lot.
If we must die, O let us nobly die,
So that our precious blood may not be shed
In vain; then even the monsters we defy
Shall be constrained to honor us though dead!
O kinsmen! we must meet the common foe!
Though far outnumbered let us show us brave,
And for their thousand blows deal one death-blow!
What though before us lies the open grave?
Like men we'll face the murderous, cowardly pack,
Pressed to the wall, dying, but fighting back!
- Claude McKay

Introduction:

It is globally established that the primary responsibility of a sovereign state encompasses the protection, security or safety of lives and properties and creation of the right atmosphere where economic, social activities thrive. Decline or complete absence of such prerequisites by acts of commission or omission implies the sovereign state is inching towards a failed state. For clarity, a ‘’failed or failing state’’, refers to ‘’a political entity or nation in which the government is inept at living up to the basic tasks of a sovereign State, is on the verge of losing or has already lost political authority, control’’. Some of the unmistakable characteristics of a failing/failed sovereign state include very weak institutions, culture of impunity, gross human right abuses, absence of rule of law, unprecedented and entrenched corruption, incessant strife and instability, geometrical depreciation in security, safety of lives and properties, liberty and the standard of living.

 ."..the Nigerian Federation is a political union, and not a cultural one, hence in amalgamating, only the political was amalgamated and therafter, federated at independence and not the cultural; and in federating, only the political was federated and not the cultural or the anthropo-socio-cultural and the spiritual."
BY JOHN ODEY ADUMA, PUBLISHER AND BRITISH CHEVENING SCHOLAR, UNITED KINGDOM
